    Hi all

    this is my 1st post and i apologise if this has already been asked before...

    I have an acer aspire which i have removed battery and hdd from. It currently has the black screen and nothing else. The power light comes on and the fan for 5secs only. I have tried it on an external monitor - no success.

    So i am trying to flash the bios. I can get the laptop in crisis mode by holding FN + ESC , the power light flashes.

    I have followed a tutorial on here using wincrisis and plash16.exe, and have the 3 files on my usb (kingston g3 8gb data traveller, formatted to fat32). The files on the usb are plash16.exe, bios.wph, and minidos.

    The light on the usb flashes once when i press the power button on the laptop, but then nothing.

    Should i be seeing the usb light flashing, so i know its doing something? its as thou the usb isnt booting?

    I am sure i am nearly there...please help
